but they really break down into two cases. first, challenges involving the federal defense of marriage act, a key provision defines marriage for all federal purposes as between a man and a woman. and then the second set involves california's proposition 8. that proposition bannedded same sex marriage in california. >> brown: wading into an area where states are voting all the time on. >> absolutely. railroad referendums on a number of state ballots involving same sex marriage. >> brown: just a couple of other cases we might see. civil rights. voting rights act of 1965. >> yes. there are challenges to what is considered the crown jewel of the civil rights movement. section 5 of the 1965 voting rights act requires jurisdictions that have a history of past discrimination in voting to get pre-approval from the justice department or a federal court in washington whenever they make changes in their voting practices. that secon... that section is bg challenged in two cases although the court hasn't said it would review them. also we may see section 5 being challenged in cases involving voter i.d. laws.
are now building a nato missile defense system to protect our populations against milz attacks. piracy, this is the reasons why we conduct counterpiracy operation. so across the board we have taken on responsibility for new missions but, again, with the core task to protect our citizens against any thrat. >> rose: how much of that is borne by the united states, both in terms of budget and in terms of resources? >> a lot, of course. the united states is the biggest ally accounting for around 80% of the overall defense expenditure in our alliance. so it really is a huge contribution. but politically i think it's of jut most importance also for a suppower like the united states to have allies in europe, like-minded democracies. i find it of utmost importance that democracies in europe and north america stand together shoulder to shoulder to defend our common values. >> rose: when you talk about missile defense, against missiles coming from where? >> well, actually, our missile defense system is not directed against any specific country but it aims at protecting our populations against mis
researchers. >> how many general rations elapsed? >> between matthew and lucas, r argued and defensible reasons scholars think that matthew and luke were probably written just before the turn of the first century. >> i thought it was closer to 47 years. >> after what? >> after his death. >> well, he died around -- no, mark is the earliest one and mark seems to have been written around the destruction of the temple. >> i guess what she's saying is a lot of this is hand me down, verbal accounts, which of course are subject to considerable alteration in the pass,e certainly know that, correct? >> well, today it certainly is not like the-mile-per-hour dame -- the children's parlor game of telephone where you pass a saying around the circle and by the time it gets to the end it's been corrupted. go back to the historical context, it was a very oral culture. and we're only talking, here, maybe 40 or 50 years. i can certainly remember things 40 years ago. and 30 years ago quite cereal. and something of this monumental importance i probably would remember it quite vividly. but in that where mem
strong defenses of such speech not only by president obama but also from leaders in the american muslim community. i want to explore that with kim lawton managing editor of the program and the director of the muslim office of the public affairs council. welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> how are you american muslims trying it to persuade other muslims around the world that putting any kind of limit on free speech is dangerous? >> well, i think the first way we're trying to convince fellow m muslims of this is the fact that the idea of free speech is a foundational part of the koran itself. we don't only believe in terms of americans and our belief in the constitution, but the koran challenges folks to engage in dialogue and in discourse. it challenges people of the same faith and various different faiths as well. so it's foundational to the text of islam, we believe. the koran actually records insults to the prophet mohammad himself and challenges people to engage in the discourse. it's foundational to the constitution and sacred text as well. >> are you getting anywhere with that ar
and summer of next year as the red line. earlier in the year, our own secretary of defense said that israel would like the attack in april, may, or june. it is giving obama a kind of concession, saying we can wait a little more, but not that much more. >> iraq and afghanistan have worked out so damn well, why not iran? >> now the real news. the nfl referees have gone back to work. >> simultaneous to are they commit to? >> touchdown. >> i have not seen anything like that in all my years of football. >> who ever thought that fans would be cheering nfl referees? what a country. >> is a great country, and any group -- the referees who were kept out by the shortsightedness and selfishness and greed of the owners, and their lack the commissioner, mr. goodell -- alckey commissioner, mr. goodell, have cheering for them scott walker, the union-busting governor of wisconsin, and paul ryan, the union-busting vice presidential nominee -- he has become a labor activist spirit what a great country. >> strong note to follow, charles. >> you can always leave it to mark to find a partisan and will to anythi
pretty clearly it was a terrorist attack. >> brown: at the pentagon today, defense secretary leon panetta seemed to have little doubt about what happened at the u.s. consulate in libya more than two weeks ago. >> a group of terrorists obviously conducted that attack on the consulate and against our individuals. what terrorists were involved, i think, remains to bdetermined by an investigation, but it clearly was a group of terrorists who conducted that attack against the facility. >> brown: what seemed clear today, though, had seemed less so just days ago. the original explanation for what happened the evening of september 11 was that an america-made movie denigrating islam had incited a mob, which had then stormed the u.s. consulate in benghazi. that attack left four americans dead, including u.s. ambassador to libya, christopher stephens. but in the weeks since, even as protests spread across the muslim world over the anti- muslim film, a chorus of doubt grew over whether militant extremists, including al qaeda , had planned the attack to coincide with september 11. and the entire issu
and not obama had promised to increase defense spending. only 23% were aware that payroll taxes had decreased during obama's term in office. only slightly more than half knew that paul ryan is the republican vice presidential nominee. the director of the annenberg center, kathleen hall jamieson, our master media decoder is back with us. welcome. >> thank you. >> so who's responsible for the widespread unawareness or ignorance that you report in your survey? is it the candidate, the media, or the voter? >> it's all three. and fortunately, we have the opportunity with presidential debates to do something that reliably increases knowledge. we've been studying presidential debates for a long time as a scholarly community. and to our surprise, we consistently find that those who watch debates, regardless of the level of knowledge they come in with, come out with more accurate knowledge as a general group. and they do this because those who haven't paid a great deal of attention have a lot to learn. those of us who've paid a lot of attention still missed things. the news may have covered something
obama did not seem to have a plan, did not seemo have a strategy. seemed to be in a prevent defenses. he's been running a pretty safe campaign because he's been ahead for a while and feeling confident about where they are. he was like, looked like he was trying to stall out the clock. seemed to me like he was endure the debate more than engaging the debate. the visuals, talking to a lot of people in mike's profession. in any debate turn the sound off and just look at the visuals what you're seeing. president obama staring down, not making eye contact with governor romney nor the audience. that visual cue it's almost accepting the other guy's making a point you need to deal with as opposed to forcefully kind of staring them down in a pose of reputation. you never saw that with president obama tonight. i thought it was a curiously passive performance, and there's a lot of things that mitt romney said tonight that he's never said before. he said i'm not, there's going to be no fax cuts for upper income earners. no cuts to medicare. those are positions we've not heard from governor romney be
defense fund, they used the latest data on kids who have died of gun injuries. 5,740 kids have died because of gun injuries. for between 2008 and 2009, at the latest data. so i just want to put this issue on the table because there is another side to the debate about gun control and i wish we had a serious discussion about it. >> while i certainly said usually guns killed by guns it's accidental and a lot of times it's because the parents aren't being responsible and most instances they are illegal guns in the household and children are getting access to them. so there is a whole layer of things that have to be addressed. with regards to mr. ryan and going outside with his daughter, that's great. he loves his daughter and wants to have fun with her. but i don't think that's the issue in terms of election and whether or not that's going to make or break their campaign. it really isn't. >> and those of us who are for gun control -- these are children being taught how to use a gun and these are children who come from hunting families. it's different from the kind of gun control people
. ceradyne makes ceramic products used in the defense and auto industries. for instance, it makes lightweight armor for military helmets. conglomerate 3-m is the buyer. the price tag is about $860 million, including ceradyne's cash and short term investments. ceradyne shares will get $35 per share. the offer sent shares of cerady up 43.1 on heavy volume. the stock closed just shy of the buyout price. the buyer: 3m, moved 0.9% higher, closing about $1 below a 52 week high. just a month ago, 3-m scrapped plans to buy the officer and consumer products division of avery dennison. that deal died after the department of justice threatened to sue over anti-trust concerns. there's no deal for business software firm b.m.c., but it is looking for one. the stock rallied 3.3% today after the wall street journal reported the company has hired bank of america merrill lynch to drum up interest from a potential buyer. meantime, honeywell is making a play in the natural gas business, buying 70% of the privately held thomas russell company, an energy equipment supplier. honeywell shares rallied 1.8%, closing j
crowd says well, miguel cab rare, a he n'tun to save his live, his defense is average, all he can do is hit the ball. well, isn't that the basis of the game? you have to hit the ball to score a run. so it's a very passionate debate but a lot of people think if you won the triple crown how can you not be the m.v.p.? especially -- because without miguel cabrera the detroit tigers would not be opening in the american league playoffs on saturday and mike trout's team aren't in the playoffs. >> brown: detroit has a very successful name the playoffs. detroihas had a rough patch for a long time. what role do the tigers play at a moment like this? >> an important role. i'm a born and raised in this town and i've known detroiters live vicariously and that's basically all that we have in a lot of respects that we can embrace and take pride in. so when the teams do well it lifts everyone's spirits. they have three million people buying tickets for the tigers game this year and detroit's economy isn't al th goo right now but that tells you how passionate these people are but they'll take whateve
is not asking for, $7 trillio just to give you a sense over 10 years, that's more than our entire defense budget, and you think that by closing loopholes and deductions for the well to-do, somehow you will not end up picking up the tab, then, governor romney's plan may work for you you. but i think math, common sense, and our history shows us that's not a recipe for job growth. look, we've tried this-- we've tried both approaches. the approach that governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. we ended up moving from surplus to deficits. and it all culminated in the worst financial crise since the great depression. bill clinton tried the approach that i'm talking about. we created 23 million new jobs. we went from deficit to surplus, and businesses did very well. so in some ways, we've got some data on which approach is more likely to create jobs and opportunity for americans and i believe that the economy works best when middle-class families are getting tax breaks so that they've got some money
